Breuil -Cervinia.
In 1978 as a young guy in my mid twenties i first arrived in Cervinia looking to do some high altitude off piste skiing and having found a winter paradise i returned to this area every winter since sometimes spending the whole winter season .But never did i go there in the summer time until now taking up an invitation that has been on the table for over 30 years .I arrived at end of season so the chair lifts along with the mountain huts were closed but this did not take away from the enjoyment as we had some fantastic walks with stunning views. Walking in areas around Cervinia ,Valtournenche and the small mountain villages of Chamois and Chenel . The area is situated in the Valle d'Aosta app a 2.5 hour drive from the airports of Milan and 1.5hrs from Turin.Well worth the trip either in summer or winter.

When you're surrounded by murk and mediocrity it doesn't take much to stand out.Meikle Bin is such a hill sitting in the more or less flat upland bog that make up most of the Campsie Hills.
